First Flight Society Sweepstakes Supports Wright Legacy

Orville Wright taking off in the Wright Flyer for the very first time, at 10:35am on December 17th, 1903 in Kittyhawk, North Carolina. His brother, Wilbur can be seen just off the aircraft's starboard wingtip. The San Diego Air & Space Museum will be celebrating the 118th anniversary of this historic feat this Friday by running a replica of Charles Taylor's engine which powered this aircraft.

As our recent name change suggests, Vintage Aviation News wants to cover as much of aviation history as possible, and it’s hard to imagine a more important contribution to the advent of powered flight than the work of the Wright family, with brothers Wilbur and Orville, along with their sister Katharine, paving the way for everything which followed. This is where the First Flight Society plays a vital role in keeping alive the memory of those early days of aviation, and it is why we wish to support them with our coverage of their activities. Right now, the organization is holding their annual sweepstakes, ticket sales from which will contribute to their ongoing efforts to help preserve and celebrate the ingenuity and derring-do of our aviation pioneers. The winner of these sweepstakes will receive a brand new Jeep Rubicon 392 as the following press release reveals…

KITTY HAWK, N.C. July 11, 2022 – The Rubicon 392 is the ONLY WRANGLER with a 6.4L HEMI® V8 engine. This Jeep is highly sought after, and we have one on hand to give away to one lucky winner!
